Is it safe to be in the balcony alone without a mask if neighbours are Covid cases?

There is nothing unsafe about standing in the balcony, as long as there is adequate distance between the households. From the very beginning of the pandemic, the WHO has said that only in close contact (less than 6 feet) can there be transmission of the virus through cough/sneeze droplets, and that’s why one needs to wear a mask and sanitise when in a crowded space.
